I am an artist, designer, and preservationist who lives to be a light for the Lord and to save old houses.
A dumpster diving germ freak by trade and obsession, I love to take something neglected and turn it into something truly beautiful. Along with rearranging furniture and deconstructing 1960's "home improvements," going IN to Krispy Kreme instead of using the "drive-thru" is one of my favorite forms of exercise! Currently, I am restoring a 1910 Frankenstein of a farmhouse and a 1919 Craftsman Bungalow. Oh, and I have a tiny little shop that features vintage goodies and pretty new things for you, your home, and baby!
When I was growing up, we spent the holidays with my paternal grandparents. One year they would drive out to Washington State and the next year we would take the 3 day drive to celebrate Christmas with them in Minnesota. My grandparents had a wonderful mid-century home. I loved that house. In particular, I loved the upstairs fridge...
Sometime before she sold the house she had called a home since my dad's teenage years...my older brother, the middle one, moved back to Minnesota and lived with my grandmother...and they got rid of the wonderful old pink fridge...and its coordinating white wallpaper with the whimsical pink and orange tulips which seemed to dance happily around the kitchen. Ugh! It's been about 16 years since I last stood in that kitchen...I first happened upon this old advertisement when I was working on a class project at university. I happened upon it again today, whilst looking through old discs..to find a lovely picture to share with you.
What do you think?
Wouldn't you like to have a happy pink refrigerator hanging on your wall???
Oh, and the master bathroom...it was allll pink! My grandpa used that bathroom..and my grandma got ready in the one down the hall.
